This project focuses on the design of a mosque combined with a cultural centre in a Nordic context, far north in Norway-Tromsø. By creating a common facility for Muslims of Tromsø this project looks for a new mosque typology based on the arctic context but still respecting the sacred aim of a mosque. The additional function with a cultural centre is thought to create a common facility across the cultural boundaries for Tromsø as a city, and contribute to narrowing down the cultural gap between Muslims and non-Muslim citizens of Tromsø. Beside this, the project’s intension is to design a complex with aesthetic qualities based on spatial experience and materiality.
